China Metal Oil Storage Tank Manufacturer
Containers for storing crude oil or other petroleum products. Used in refineries, oil fields, oil depots, and other industries. The oil tank area is composed of several oil tanks. Each tank area generally stores one kind of oil.
Classified by material
1. According to the material, it is divided into steel, reinforced concrete and masonry.
Steel tanks are available in vertical (including dome and floating top cylinders), spherical shells and horizontal (cylindrical). The vertical vault roof tank is composed of a spherical crown tank roof and a vertical cylindrical tank wall. Mainly used for storage media are non-volatile oils, such as diesel and similar oils. The most common volume is 1000 - 10000m³.
The floating roof tank is composed of a floating roof floating on the surface of the medium and a vertical cylindrical tank wall. The floating roof rises and falls as the storage of the medium in the tank increases or decreases. There is an annular sealing device between the outer edge of the floating roof and the tank wall, and the medium in the tank is always directly covered by the inner floating roof to reduce the evaporation of the medium. Mainly used for storage media are volatile oils, such as gasoline and similar oils. The volume of the floating roof tank is generally large. The floating roof is divided into single disk type floating roof, double disk type floating roof and float type floating roof.
Horizontal tanks consist of end caps and horizontal round or oval tank walls, usually used in production or gas stations. The volume of horizontal tanks is generally less than 100m³.
Classified by structure
2. According to the structure, there are mainly crude oil storage tanks, fuel storage tanks, lubricating oil tanks, animal and vegetable oil storage tanks, and the like.
Avoid ground shear damage. According to the nature of the stored oil, it can be divided into heavy oil tanks and light oil tanks. At the same time, attention should be paid to the changes in the surface soil around the tank. According to the buried depth, it can be divided into above ground type, semi-underground type and underground type. So that the settlement of the tank can not be too fast, such as steel tanks buried underground or semi-underground. A wall must be provided to withstand earth pressure.
The oil tank area is composed of several oil tanks. Each tank area generally stores one kind of oil. Oil tank area should have fire protection, lightning protection and static electricity protection facilities. Fire levees should also be built in the above-ground oil tank area. The settlement observation should be carried out continuously.
